The Lyrics

Sometimes I feel I want to
Sketch a horse
I've got to
Get a way to mix paint and
Draw upon the art in me

That chalk you shared
Left its dust everywhere
And I've lost the hoof
That I used for etching things on the roof

Here's a wild boar
Shall I make some more?
My painted cave's a showplace
Who says cavemen ain't got no taste?
Birds and deers and that's not nearly all!
Painted cave
Painted cave

Now I know I could use
More technique
I ought to
Figure out a way to
Make shapes look not quite so flat
To draw things right
You need a proper line of sight
But I think that goat looks OK
Though it's not exactly a Monet

Here's a sort of cow
(Damn, I botched the brow)
There's nothing straight and Doric
In a venue prehistoric
Still, it's cool that I can paint at all!
Painted cave
Painted cave

Don't get much nearer—
You're polluting Altamira!
You can look though you mustn't touch
Now I need to make a horsehair brush

Painted cave...
Don't touch it, baby
Painted cave...
Baby, baby, where did our Lascaux?...
